Care Group Bucks Trend And Expands With New Home Purchase

Expanding Yorkshire care provider Saint Cecilia’s is continuing its growth with the purchase of a care home in Pickering.
Bucking the current tough economic climate, the acquisition of the Alba Rose care home from a family owner, brings Saint Cecilia’s Care Group’s family to three care homes, a nursing home and a day care centre.
Saint Cecilia’s was advised by national law firm Irwin Mitchell. This is a new client for the firm who advised on the real estate, banking, corporate and employment aspects of the purchase.
Saint Cecilia’s Managing Director Mike Padgham said: “We are delighted to welcome the Alba Rose and its excellent staff and lovely residents into the Saint Cecilia’s family. The home has an enviable reputation based on excellent care delivered by the Whincup family over 35 years and we look forward to building on that in the future. It will be very much business as usual for all the staff and residents.”
The Alba Rose, at Keldhead Hall, in Middleton Road, Pickering, accommodates up to 22 residents. A spokesman for Alba Rose said: “After owning the home for so long it is going to be sad to leave but we are happy to be leaving the home in the safe hands of a family-owned care company that shares our values. We wish them all future success with the home.”
Mr Padgham added: “To survive and prosper in the current economic climate, we believe that the business needs to be a certain size and the purchase of Alba Rose goes towards achieving that size. It helps us to grow and strengthen the company and the care offered and also provides opportunities for progression across the group for all our staff.”
